McCook, Robert “Bob”

With broken hearts we announce the death of Bob McCook on September 30, 2021. Known by all as caring, modest, intelligent and honourable. A humanist with a dry wit, he was admired for his tenacious, patient, and loyal qualities.  “I understand, I agree, however” was a favourite phrase, using it to bring a fresh perspective to any discussion.  This time, those of us who loved Bob will not permit the “however” because we insist that our description of him is true.  A public servant, community volunteer, generous host, and faithful friend, he was above all a family man. Mourning him are his wife Marny, daughters Stephanie (Ben) and Emily, grandchildren Noémie, Marin and Simon, sisters Katherine and Sheila, and in-laws Diane (Keith), Jack (Marilyn), and Nancy.  We will miss his welcoming “well, hello” and the conversations and laughter that followed.  Donations in Bob’s memory to Christie Lake Kids would be appreciated.
